Field Trip Report


Event: Field Trip to Fowles Marsh
Date: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 8:30 a.m.
Location: Fowles Marsh-M
eet at Polaris Career Center, 7285 Old Oak
Blvd, Middleburg Heights, OH 44130
Leader: Liz McQuaid
Results: 17 Birders, 38 Species plus 2 other taxa
Blue skies and brilliant sun brought out a variety of bird species at Fowles Marsh. Flocks of
blackbirds included Red-winged Blackbirds (mostly females and youngsters), Brown-headed
Cowbirds and Rusty Blackbirds. Precise numbers were difficult to peg, due to the many birds in
constant motion in and out of wetland vegetation. Cedar Waxwings also flocked, sparkling in
treetops. Yellow-rumped Warblers were present in small active groups. Kinglets have arrived, a
sign of impending winter. Along the trail to Lake Isaac, Eastern Bluebirds posed in the sun. At
Lake Isaac, Pied-billed Grebes, a Double-crested Cormorant and Eastern Phoebes were a
pleasant surprise. Thanks to leader Liz McQuaid and to Dave Graskemper, who shared scope
views.
